A-10 Releases 2013-14 Men's Basketball Conference Schedule Pairings
June 12, 2013
PITTSBURGH - Duquesne will host five of the seven returning Atlantic 10 teams that made post-season appearances last year as part of the 2013-14 conference schedule released today.
The A-10's 13 members will face each school once and four schools twice as part of the 16-game schedule (game dates and times to be released at a later date).
Duquesne's home-and-home opponents include 2013 NCAA tournament participants La Salle and Saint Louis along with first-year conference member George Mason. Longtime rival St. Bonaventure is DU's other two-time opponent. Additional home games include: Dayton, Fordham, Massachusetts (NIT) and Richmond (CBI).
La Salle (24-10), Saint Louis (28-7) and George Mason (22-16) - which advanced to the CBI championship round - all won at least 22 games last season. Duquesne and George Washington are the only schools who will face two of the Atlantic 10's three returning 2013 NCAA tournament participants home-and-home. DU, GW and St. Bonaventure are the only schools with three 2013 post-season participants in their four-team pod.
The Dukes will play George Washington, Rhode Island, Saint Joseph's and VCU on the road in addition to the four home-and-home opponents.
In a change from last year, all 13 conference teams will qualify for the 2014 Atlantic 10 Championship at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. on March 13-16.
